“This was an excellent cigar start to finish. I am not usually into sweet cigars, but this one is special. The exhale is full of flavor and easy to derive flavor from. Medium strength that builds, and a cigar that starts out not messing around with the medium-full bodied profile. I dug the cream, natural tobacco sweetness, various peppers, raw cane sugar, espresso, nutmeg and cinnamon. This cigar was very AGANORSA-esque. I would recommend this cigar to anyone who enjoys premium cigar offerings from the novice to the seasoned cigar smoker. The blender knew what he/she was looking for.. and just straight damn nailed it. Bravo.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
“Overall this was a very good cigar experience. I would recommend this cigar to the 20 year old cigar aficionado or 80 year old novice, it is that of an all around good cigar experience with flavors that excite the palate from start to finish. As for me, if this cigar is available in the robusto vitola, I will be grabbing 10 of them for my personal humidor.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
This was an excellent cigar. I have never come across a PDR that I didn’t enjoy, but this one was among the best. I could also sense in it great aging potential and I believe time will only bring out more of the spice and coffee bean I detected in pre-light. These will not be around long, and I would advise against hesitation on purchasing some of these, as they will not lost long. I remember debating on pulling the trigger on a box of these when they were available years ago, and now regret not buying it even more. Buy a box of these, you will not be sorry.

“This is a cigar that I would gladly smoke again. While the flavors may not have gone through a roller coaster of transitions, they were consistent and well balanced. The retrohale was not bitter or harsh, and really complimented the flavors on the palate. It burned well and produced great smoke. I look forward to finding out about this cigar.” –Matthew T.
